BH Digital Services, a new digital advertising agency created by BH Media Group, announced today a long-term partnership utilizing The McClatchy Company’s (NYSE: MNI) Tru Measure solutions to power BH Digital Services’ digital offerings for small to medium-sized businesses (SMB) in local markets.

“Tru Measure’s end-to-end solution enables BH Digital Services’ sales team to help local businesses be more successful with their marketing plans. Now we can provide valuable information about the effectiveness of each campaign that we run for our partners,” said Thom Kastrup, BH Media Group’s vice president of sales and chief revenue officer.

BH Digital Services will officially launch Tru Measure’s Tru Local™ digital agency solution over the next few months under BH Media’s own white-label brand. The program includes a comprehensive product set developed through the team’s extensive digital advertising expertise to successfully build, manage, optimize and renew campaigns. These local advertising services are further empowered by Tru Measure’s customizable analytics platform that clearly demonstrates ROI on advertising spend. Tru Measure also created new measurement tools to support distinct services provided by BH Media Group to its clients.

“Bringing our SMB solution set to BH Digital Services is a tremendous opportunity for us to provide even more proof that measurement matters when it’s done right,” said Charity Huff, founder and general manager for Tru Measure. “The proof is delivered when our clients see their bottom line directly affected by new revenue and a higher percentage of renewed revenue.”

Tru Measure has spent the past few months training BH Digital Services sales executives and managers on the value of a multi-platform digital marketing solution. Training and support will continue throughout the partnership with Tru Measure serving as a champion for BH Digital Solutions’ and their clients’ local online marketing success.
